Santa Clara County spurs more affordable housing

SAN JOSE, Calif. (BCN) — Santa Clara County has seen a number of milestones in its effort to increase the affordable housing inventory this month, including a first in a decade development for North San Jose.

The county and cities like San Jose and Santa Clara are racing to build more housing–especially affordable and supportive residences–to help address a housing crisis that has driven residents away and left others falling into homelessness.

In San Jose, officials are revitalizing efforts to build more affordable homes in North San Jose after a legal obstacle that blocked new housing in the area for almost a decade was removed recently.
